Patterned Occasions Sale-A-Bration Card

Happy Wednesday, everyone!  I made this card a couple weeks ago, and I haven't been able to post it.  I made the card with the Sale-A-Bration (SAB) set, Patterned Occasions (SAB Brochure).  I inked the teacup with an Island Indigo marker, the "steam" with a Tangerine Tango marker, and the greeting with a Rich Razzleberry marker.  I stamped it onto a scrap piece of Whisper White card stock, and punch it out with a 1-3/4" Circle (p. 184).  I then punched a scrap piece of Rich Razzleberry card stock with a 2-3/8" Scallop Circle Punch (p. 184), and attached the teacup circle to it.
 
I embossed the Tangerine Tango layer with the SAB Impressions folder, Vine Street (SAB Brochure).  I attached a piece of Sycamore Street DSP (SAB Brochure) to the bottom of it, and attached it to a piece of Island Indigo card stock.  I wrapped a piece of Island Indigo satin ribbon from the Sycamore Street Ribbon & Button Pack (SAB Brochure) around the piece, and attached the ends to the back of it.  I then took a shorter piece of the ribbon, and tied it onto the right side with a single knot.  I attached this to the Rich Razzleberry card front.  I then attached the teacup piece to the left side of the card using Stampin' Dimensionals (p. 177).  I then attached a Rich Razzleberry button from the Sycamore Street Ribbon & Button Pack using a Glue Dot (p. 177).

Paper:  Rich Razzleberry, Island Indigo, Tangerine Tango, and Whisper White card stock; Sycamore Street DSP

Feeling Sentimental SAB Card

Happy Friday, everyone!  Here's the card I promised yesterday.  This is the first card I've made with the Feeling Sentimental SAB set (SAB brochure).  I stamped the bicycle onto Very Vanilla card stock in Early Espresso ink.  I then sponged the edges of the piece with the same ink.  I then attached it to a piece of Early Espresso card stock and then Cherry Cobbler card stock.
 
I stamped the Eiffel Tower and the rose stamps from the Collage Curios stamp set (p. 24 in Spring Catalog) one time each onto a piece of Cherry Cobbler card stock with Early Espresso ink.  I then punched them both out with the Jewelry Tag Punch (p. 183), and sponged the edges of the tags with Early Espresso ink.  I cut out three, 1" pieces of Natural 7/16" Trim Ribbon (p. 20 in Spring Catalog).  I frayed an edge on each piece.  I then attached both tags and all three pieces of ribbon to a safety pin from the Vintage Trinkets pack (p. 175 in annual catalog).  I then attached them to the top, left corner of the bicycle piece with a Glue Dot (p. 177 in annual catalog).
 
I embossed the top half of a piece of Very Vanilla card stock with the Square Lattice Folder (p. 189 in annual catalog), and sponged the embossing and the edges of the card stock with Early Espresso ink.  I stamped the greeting from the Feeling Sentimental SAB set with Early Espresso ink.  I attached it to a piece of Early Espresso card stock, and then attached it to the Cherry Cobbler card base.
 
I then cut a piece of First Edition Specialty DSP (p. 162 in the annual catalog), cut the ends with the corner of the 1" Square Punch (p. 183 in the annual catalog), and sponged the edges with Early Espresso ink.  I then attached it to the center of the card, and then attached the bicycle piece over the DSP, and above the greeting.

Bloomin' Marvelous Sale-A-Bration Set

As you're reading this, I'm getting ready to leave for a 48 hour Stampin' & Scrappin' Retreat that my church has every year.  I'm so looking forward to it.  I really need this relaxing time with good friends!  I'm posting this card today, and I'll schedule another one to post tomorrow while I'm gone.  I hope you enjoy them!
 
This is the first card I've made with the beautiful Bloomin' Marvelous SAB stamp set (SAB brochure).  I love stamp sets that have both images and greetings.  This card is so quick and easy to make.  This was one of the cards made at my SAB Open House last Saturday.  I think it was just about every one's favorite!
 
I inked up the flower with the More Mustard ink pad, removed the ink from the flower center with a Blender Pen (p. 178), and then colored the flower middle again with an Early Espresso marker.  I did the same with the other flowers, but used Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive ink pads.  The saying was stamped in Early Espresso ink.  I then attached the stamped Whisper White layer onto Early Espresso card stock.  I then tied a piece of Cherry Cobbler 1/2" Scallop Dots Ribbon (p. 172) across the top, and then attached it to the Old Olive card base.  I told you it was quick and easy!
 
 
Stamps:  Bloomin' Marvelous stamp set

Ink:  More Mustard, Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive, and Early Espresso Classic ink pads

Paper:  Old Olive, Early Espresso, and Whisper White card stock

Accessories:  Cherry Cobbler 1/2" Scallop Dots ribbon and Blender Pens

Burlap Valentine Décor

Here is another GORGEOUS Valentine project at Craft Project Central.  This beautiful picture and banner were designed by Carrie Rhoades.
 
The look of burlap has become quite popular for home decor. Here are two tun Valentine projects that will bring the shabby chick look of burlap to your decor. Each pennant on the "sweet love" banner is burlap with designer paper stitched on top. Accents of glittered hearts, dyed ribbon and paper flowers finish off the banner. The framed Amore art piece really pops with rolled paper roses. These two coordinating decor pieces would really show someone how special they are to you or would be a great addition to your own decor this Valentine’s Day!

Faux Frame Technique

This was the other card that my Technique Club made this week. (See the other one here).  I saw this card on Dawn Olchefske blog.  You'll want to check out her video where she shows how to do the Faux Frame technique.  She saw the card in our demonstrator magazine, Stampin' Success.  It was made by another demonstrator, Krista Fenton.  Dawn loved it (I do, too), and CASEd (Copy and Share Everything) it with one little change (the greeting).  I CASEd the card with Dawn's little change, but I made one little change, too (embossed the card base).  I love how one little change can make a card look so different!   
 
Stamps:  Field Flowers and Petite Pairs

Ink:  Old Olive, Not Quite Navy, Baja Breeze, Crumb Cake, and Early Espresso Classic ink pads

Paper:  Naturals White card stock

Accessories:  Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine, Labels Collection Framelits dies, Lacy Brocade Impressions Folder, Decorative Label Punch, Basic Pearls Jewels, Stamping Sponges, and Stampin' Dimensionals

Sale-A-Bration Sneak Peek

I hope you're all having a wonderful day!  Sale-A-Bration (SAB) begins this coming Tuesday, and I want to share the first card I've made with some of the wonderful SAB products.  I used the three SAB products that have been bundled up as an extra hostess benefit that can be earned with a qualifying workshop during SAB.  Of course, you can also get one of them with every $50 spent on an order (before shipping & tax).
 
The stamp set is called Madison Avenue (SAB).  I love that the medallion flower on the left coordinates perfectly with the smallest die in the Floral Frames Framelits (p. 191).  After stamping the medallion with Rich Razzleberry ink onto a scrap piece of Whisper White card stock, I die-cut it with the small flower die, and then attached it to the card with a Stampin' Dimensional (p. 177).  I then took one of the Pool Party Buttons from the Sycamore Street Ribbon & Button Pack (SAB), tied a piece of Lucky Limeade Baker's Twine (p. 172) onto it, and then attached it to the flower with a Glue Dot (p. 177).  It's hard to tell in the picture, but there's a small Basic Rhinestone Jewel (p. 175) in the middle of the Tangerine Tango flower on the right.  The greeting is from the Friendly Phrases stamp set (p. 137), and I stamped it in Island Indigo ink. 
 
The third SAB item I used was the designer paper called Sycamore Street DSP (SAB).  I LOVE the colors in this paper.  They are so pretty together!  The ribbon tied around the DSP strip is Tangerine Tango satin ribbon that comes with Sycamore Street Ribbon & Button Pack, too.  The doily that is behind the flower piece is from the Tea Lace Paper Doilies pack (p. 5 in the Spring Catalog).
 

Stamps:  Madison Avenue and Friendly Phrases stamp sets

Ink:  Lucky Limeade, Rich Razzleberry, Tangering Tango, and Island Indigo Classic ink pads

Paper:  Island Indigo, Rich Razzleberry, and Whisper White card stock; Sycamore Street DSP

Accessories:  Sycamore Street Ribbon & Button Pack, Tea Lace Paper Doilies, Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine, Floral Frames Framelits, Lucky Limeade Baker's Twine, Basic Rhinestones Jewels, Stampin' Dimensionals, and Glue Dots

Mojo Monday Sketch #276

Happy Monday, everyone!  I'm a lot later posting than usual, but I didn't want to wait until tomorrow to post this one.  I haven't played along with the Mojo Monday sketch for quite awhile, and I finally had time to do it today.  To see the sketch, go to MOJO276.  As you can see, I rotated the sketch 90 degrees to the right.
 
This is going to be one of the cards that my technique club will be making this week.  I used the bleach technique on this card.  The stamp set I used is the Blooming with Kindness stamp set (p. 87 in the annual catalog).  The flower was stamped onto Sahara Sand card stock with VersaMark ink, heat embossed with black EP, and then painted with bleach.  Once the bleach dried, I watercolored it with Calypso Coral ink.  I then die-cut it with the third smallest die from the Window Frames Collection Framelits dies (p. 36 in the Spring Catalog).  I sponged the edges with Early Espresso ink to make it pop a little more. 
 
The designer paper is from the beautiful, new Tea for Two DSP pack (p. 3 in the Spring Catalog).  Both DSP pieces are 2" x 4", and I attached them to the top of a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Very Vanilla card stock.  I wrapped a 6" piece of Lucky Limeade 3/8" ruffled ribbon (p. 172 in the annual catalog) across the bottom of the DSP, and attached the two ends to the back of the card stock.  I then took a 5" piece of the same ribbon, and tied it onto the left side of the other piece of ribbon with a single knot.  I stamped the greeting from the stamp set with Early Espresso ink.  I attached it all to the Calypso Coral card base (5-1/2" x 8-1/2", folded in half).  I then attached the flower piece to the center of the DSP with Stampin' Dimensionals (p. 177 in the annual catalog).
 
Stamps:  Blooming with Kindness

Ink:  Calypso Coral and Early Espresso Classic ink pads; Versamark Pad

Paper:  Calypso Coral, Sahara Sand, and Very Vanilla card stock; Tea for Two DSP

Accessories:  Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine, Window Frames Collection Framelits dies; Black Emboss Powder, Heat Tool, Embossing Buddy, Aqua Painters, Stamping Sponges, Lucky Limeade 3/8" Ruffled Ribbon, Stampin' Dimensionals, & bleach.
